Debian is a Linux release, which is widespread for desktop machines, however it's been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last few years too. It's very stable and safe, due to the fact that fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you'll be able to contact the developers straight away through electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response within 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system works. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your website hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and fast and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
There are a few Operating Systems that we provide with our Linux VPS hosting packages and Debian is among them, so if you need a server with this OS, you'll be able to obtain one in under an hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will have will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline application which you intend to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be performed in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas with the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some restrictions, but you'll be able to do everything through your Internet browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you are not very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we will also maintain your Debian OS updated on a weekly basis, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to choose any of them with just a mouse click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the apps which you plan to use require for top notch performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet wish to control it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who need to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server at all. We will also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, as it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
